On a very nice August morning, eight sisters met at my place for the "1st Thursday of the month sewing session". Deb was absent because of work committments...we missed you!
There was the usual chatting re families, world problem solving, the latest Show-case news etc.......
But the hot topic was Europe,.........why??.....because three of the sisters will be tripping around o'seas, in the next few weeks, mainly in this continent sight-seeing, fabric shopping, tasting all the local foods/wines, visiting museums (including quilt museums), quilt shops, galleries, quilt shows.......you get the picture!!!!
At some time, I think there may be plans to meet up in France.........Oh!! do I wish I was going!!!
O.K!...now, I am going to change the subject to one we all enjoy.............stitching!!
Meghan, Ann, Merri, and myself are working on either the original or newer versions of the "Antique Wedding Sampler"
As you can see by the photos...........everyone's quilt is going to be very different, even though the same patterns are being used. I think that is the really great thing about patchwork and applique and piecing. One person's pattern (Di Hall's) can reproduce an infinite number of versions that are all beautiful pieces of work. Barb has finished her version which is hanging in pride of place in her lounge-room.
Clare is working on the "Grove Documentation Quilt"...I believe this is star no.1 of 36!!!........just a little way to go.
Just love those little blocks....and ,may I say that mine is nearly completed!!!!
Sue has a couple of projects on the go. Lots of interest in the growth of her Hexagon quilt seen here.
O.K!!!.....just another little look:
Yumm!! Yumm!! Aren't those colours just gorgeous???
That's it for now.
